In which it is third time lucky

I had a lovely weekend where I foolishly dressed like it was Autumn. In fact it was incredibly warm when we took these photos and I was near melting. We actually had ice creams in the park shortly before we took them. 

I love this outfit to bits but this was the third time I tried to take outfit pictures in it in 2 weeks! The first time we were out and then got some bad news and I was in too much of an upset mood to smile for a camera or indulge in vanity, the second time it chucked down with rain. We tried indoors but I so disappointed with them that we deleted them all. Then, even this time, we nearly gave up because it was too hot for it. But you know we have to suffer for our art right? :P However, comfy jumper, felt hat and stompy boots is the perfect combination to enjoy an Autumn walk in my opinion. I wear these boots and this hat ever Autumn and they are both many years old. The hat is faded and battered and about 7 years old, but it's still the best hat purchase ever. Maybe next year I'll replace it. What are your favourite Autumnal wardrobe pieces? 

It was my birthday party at the weekend. It was my birthday 2 weeks ago in fact and I left this event completely unremarked upon in this blog. I am now at my 1/4 of a century and thus 25. I had a cocktail party where we made mojitos and daquris and other delights and played ugg-tect. A fantastic party game where you have to instruct your team to build a structure, but only communicating in cave man language. There are inflatable clubs. There's a little more to it than that and I really recommend it. I do play a lot of weird board games, but this one is incredibly easy to pick up and play. Would anyone be interested in a post on the board games I have at some point? I could show off some of the crazy boards and pieces they come with.
